Subject: Surreal One-Reeler
When Buster Keaton was starting out, he made numerous short films before he made features. This is one of those shorts and one of the best. Made 100 years ago, it still shows off incredibly inventive gags and expert comic timing. But what makes it REALLY stand out is its blending of Americana and a surrealism that outdoes Bunuel and Dali. As such, it is a must-see being one of the great works of art in the 20th Century. Of course, I could write much more, analyzing each gag and pointing out each surrealist image, but there isn't enough room here and you're better off seeing for yourself.

Subject: One of the best silent films ever!
Second only to Chaplin's "Modern Times," this makes me laugh out loud every time I watch it.
If you're not in to silent film, at least try this one.
This is also a big hit with kids; lots of action, not too much "mush." :)
Buster Keaton was one of the all time film geniuses.
It really makes you respect what they did when you realize this is before CG, and Buster and the others did their own stunts, and safety equipment was primitive if it existed at all.

Watch this film - you will love it
Whirlwinds, railroads, every kind of storm,
& they are still in love & can
walk away hand & hand.

the only way to go is laughing

The first Buster Keaton I ever saw. A perfect vehicle for his talents: build something, get into dangerous situations doing so and go out with a bang. It can get anyone into Keaton who might get bored halfway through 'The Paleface'. Camera work is great.
